The Green Giant Cocktail from Clover Club

Julie Reiner calls this combo of old tom gin and vibrant snap peas a “Clover Club classic,” thanks to the way co-owner Tom Macy balances fresh, seasonal flavors. “It tastes like spring in a glass,” she says.

2 oz. old tom gin
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
¾ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
½ oz. dry vermouth
4 fresh sugar snap peas
8-10 tarragon leaves
Tools: muddler, shaker, strainer
Glass: rocks
Garnish: 2 sugar snap peas

In a shaker tin, muddle the snap peas and tarragon leaves in simple syrup. Add the other ingredients and ice, then  shake until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over crushed ice and garnish.
